               / G                             / C
Well, it's / Blackfish at play in / Hermitage Bay,
          / D                                              / G
From / push through across to Bois / Island.	(pronounced BWAS)
         / G
They / broach and they spout, and
         / C
They / lift their flukes out, and
         / A                                   / D
They / wave to a town that is / dyin'.
              / G                                           / C
Now it's / many's the boats, that has / plied on the foam,
C                         / C       -        D
Hauling a - way, / Hauling a - way!
                   / G                                         /C
But there's / many more fellows, been / leaving their homes,
                   / D                                       / G
Where the / whales make free in the / harbour.

          / G                                      / C
It's at / Portage and Main you'll / see them again,
              / D                                  / G
On their / way to the hills of Al - / berta.
         / G                              / C
With / lop-side grins, they / waggle their chins, and
         / A                                           / D
They / brag of the wage they'll be / earnin'.
               / G
Then it's / quick, pull the string boys, and
C          /
Get the / tool out,
C                       / C      -       D
Haul it a - way, / Haul it a - way!
              / G                                        / C
But just / two years ago, you could / hear the same shout,
                  / D                                        / G
Where the / whales make free in the / harbour.

Chorus:

G                 / D                   / G                                         / D
Free in the / Harbour; the / Blackfish are sporting a - / gain,
 G                / C                    /                                            / C      -       D
Free in the / Harbour; un - / troubled by comings and / goings of men,
         / G                                         / C
Who / once did pursue them as / oil from the sea,
C                         / C       -        D
Hauling a - way, / Hauling a - way!
                     / G                                         / C
Now they're / Calgary roughnecks from / Hermitage Bay,
                   / D                                       / G
Where the / whales make free in the / harbour.

Break:

                  / G                               / C
Well, it's a / living they've found, / deep in the ground, and
               / D                                        / G
If there's / doubts, it's best they ig - / nore them.
       / G                                     / C
Nor / think on the bones, the / crosses and stones,
              / A                                             / D
Of their / fathers that came there be - / fore them.
          / G                                  / C
In the / taverns of Edmonton, / fishermen shout,
C                       / C      -       D
Haul it a - way, / Haul it a - way!
               / G                                             / C
They left / three hundred years buried / up by the Bay,
                   / D                                      / G
Where the / whales make free in the / harbour.

Chorus:

G                 / C                  / G
Free in the / harbour...a - / gain.
